Courage Under Fire

12 Jul, 1996

Damon plays Ilario in the war drama, Courage Under Fire. Before the Congressional Medal of Honor can be awarded, U.S. Army officer Nat Serling must investigate whether Captain Karen Walden deserves it. She will be the first female to receive the award for her heroics during Desert Storm. However, as Serling does a little digging, parts of the story do not add up. Co-starring Denzel Washington and Meg Ryan.

I remember when the movie came out and I wasn’t even mentioned in the reviews because I hadn’t really been in the press notes… I remember feeling like I had given so much for that role, and my name wasn’t even in the paper.
